Ojai golfers rose early Sept. 17, hitting the links at Soule Park to help the Ojai Valley Family Shelter (OVFS). The warm temperature was no deterrent to the 33 teams of four participating in the 10th annual Ojai Valley Family Shelter Golf Classic, OVFS's largest yearly fundraiser.

“Altogether, including staff, volunteers and golfers, we probably had 175 to 200 there,” said OVFS board member Lyn Thomas. “In addition to the golfers, there was a good turnout for the lunch and the auctions too.”
